Server Side Includes inside a CGI program

I am trying to use Server Side includes in my CGI generated pages.  However, I can get them working.  

I am working on a Netscape Server and I have turned on HTML parsing on all HTML documents.  Is there another setting that I need to change so that it (the server) will also parse SSI calls inside PERL generate pages?

Thanks,

The server (by design) won't parse a CGI's output.  If that's what you really want, have your CGI generate a file accessible by the web server, then send a redirect to the browser to point at that file, usually by sending

"Location: /new/page/location\n\n"

to stdout, instead of

"Content-type: text/html\n\n***page body***"
